The Hard Art Club is a club sculpture which shows the anti-genial attempt to transfer an event as readymade into the context of art. In the club, a black cube with sparse neon-coloured markings and a floor made of golden pebbles, the boundaries between guests, sculpture and dancers dissolve in the semi-darkness.
In the end, what remains is a room full of the left-behind traces of what went on there. As the setting in the concierge room, Lennart Münchenhagen chose to populate the Hard Art Club with his sculptures. Individual stele, which before that were availed of by the party crowd, poise on their pedestals as the protagonists waiting to witness an anticipated spectacle.
Here Lennart Münchenhagen draws our attention to a situation, and the space and time in which it manifests itself. The glossy black varnish with which the walls are covered becomes a mantle that reflects everything in a distorted and broken manner.
Lennart Münchenhagen, born 1984 in Stade, lives and works in Hamburg. Hard Art Club is realised in cooperation with Galerie Kai Erdmann, Hamburg.
